Allendale 1 Portland United Res 3

Saturday 24th February 2018

Portland United Reserves recorded back to back wins on Saturday in The Dorset Senior League and a 3rd win in 4 games as they despatched Allendale at Redcotts.

The hosts took the lead when Portland failed to clear a corner with the ball being struck in to the far corner from the edge of the penalty area.

The Blues response was almost instant as Allendale failed to clear a corner with Sean Zima on hand to rifle a left footed volley in to the roof of the net.

Portland took the lead 5 minutes later as Jack Brown was played through 1 on 1 but was brought down as he was about to finish. The defender only received a yellow card. Matt Camp coolly slotted the resulting spot kick.

After the break The Blues made it 3-1 as Sean Hawke played in Sanchez Baker who made no mistake with the finish. Baker then had the chance to make it 4-1 moments later but he couldn`t keep his shot down.

Looking back at the game Portland United Reserves Manager Justin Faulkner commented "Allendale put some real pressure on us, they pressed us really high looking for any mistake or mis-control on a bobbly pitch. They scored the 1st goal but we kept our composure and showed some real character to turn it around by half time. I can`t remember them causing us too much of a problem, our keeper only made 1 or 2 saves."

Faulkner also added "We look ahead to next week now which is a big game for us, we have got ourselves in a position where we are in striking distance of the teams above us, we now need a good result to put ourselves in a really strong position."
